Weddings, Baptisms & Ordinations!

This past weekend was a busy but wonderful weekend. There was happiness all around!! First we had a lovely wedding for my little brother, he isn't exactly little but he IS younger! It was beautiful. Ashley (my brother) and Britney (his wife) have been together for 5 years and they have a little one, Jake (my nephew). The wedding was at the Paul V. Berry park here in Wilson N.C. and the reception was at a beautiful school auditorium just across the street. The school has been there for many many years and has just recently been renovated. It made for some beautiful pictures!

So congrats to you Ashley & Britney! The wedding was perfect and you two looked amazing! May GOD continue to bless you and your family! We love you both!

Next on our list of festivities this weekend was the baptism of our sweet little girl. It was a very special baptism because her grandfather was ordained a Deacon in our Church Saturday and was able to baptize Ava yesterday!! It is truly a special event all on it's on but having her grandfather do the ceremony made it all the more special for us. We were also lucky to have such wonderful friends and family attend the baptism. Being that the wedding was the day before we had lots of family down and they were also able to come for Ava's special day.
After the baptism we had a reception in the church school gym for Michel (my father-in-law) for his ordination. It was filled with food, family and beautiful little people!!

So congratulations Ashley, Britney & Jake. You are a beautiful family and we love you very much.

Congratulations to my wonderful father-in-law for your ordination. It was truly a honor to have you baptize Ava. It made our day twice as special!

And congratulations little Ava! You are a perfect little girl and we thank GOD for you each and every day!

And a very very special thank you to Lori & Ann and the girls for being here for us (Ashley & Britney too)! It means so much. And thank you Mark & Liz for coming down and spending this time with us too, you are great friends and we can't wait to get together again SOON!!
